This the weather that 3/4 bib tights exist for
Shorts for me, I think the long tights came out twice this winter. I don't shave my legs so that probably helps.
It's my hands that feel it far more than legs. I've had days when I've underestimated how cold it is and arrived at work with my hands feeling like they've been slammed in a car door. My thickest gloves live in my bag now and probably won't come out for a while!
Where do you live??
You'll find your hands are warmer if you've got covered legs too. You'll be losing loads of lovely heat that way.
You only get one set of knees. I'm keeping mine cosy.
Shorts a couple of times this week on the way to work at noon but have put knee warmers on for the 2200 ride home.
PB is the most sensible person on here.
Never stopped wearing shorts, just added leg warmers and recently knee warmers
Went for 3/4 lengths today which was OK.
5c is when my knees get uncovered - I do get some odd looks from other cyclists and even occasional light-hearted abuse - but I hate having my knees covered on the bike. Arms covered to 10c along with fingers. Above 10c is effectively summer kit.

Reynaulds? I get a cold left index finger tip when on the hoods, sometimes just tucking it behing the lever takes the edge off it. Maybe I need a fingerdom.
